Today was Stamperama Day in Crafting Land & lots of us descended on Stevenage Leisure Centre, ready to be wowed by great demoes & perhaps make a purchase or two. There were quite a few #PATWITS, known on Twitter for our dedication to all things PaperArtsy. Some of us had met before, but there were many new faces too. There was Julie Ann, Deborah, Alison, Helen, Lin S, Jo, Karen, Lin B, Hazel & Cazz. I also had the great pleasure of meeting Alison Bomber, who has been a guest designer on the PA blog & is on the DT for The Artistic Stamper. If you don’t know Alison’s amazing work, check out her blog. And you can see photos of the gang on Helen’s blog.
Here is the queen of the #PATWITS. Mrs PaperArtsy herself, the amazing Leandra.
She’s got a brayer & she’s not afraid to use it………… Here is the awesome Darcy Wilkinson, artist extraordinaire & designer of some of the coolest PA stamps EVER. Wait until you see her new sets – squeee!!
On goes the Treasure Gold………..

Creating this. Look at those gorgeous colours!
A few samples on the PA stand. There were so many new & wonderful things available to buy. Some of which have not been officially released so we’re all keeping secrets this week, until we’re given the nod that we can show you what we got.
And finally, I made a purchase or two…. (Don’t look too closely at the paints, I think they’re still wraps for another day or two). Sorry Leandra!
I had a lovely time today. Stamperama is a lovely show to attend & it’s always great to have a crafting chat in more than 140 characters.
Thanks for looking, see you next time.
